Orthodontics within the hospital is the management of patients with Dental /facial growth problems, trauma, missing teeth, and the correction of severely crooked teeth.
Patients are referred for Oral surgical procedures in the mouth, which a dental practitioner cannot do. These procedures may be the surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth, biopsy of tongue or paediatric dental extractions.
Patients are also referred to the department for treatment of head and neck cancers and skin cancers.
We are not a dental service and do not provide any treatment such as fillings or dentures or other treatment routinely provided by a dentist.
